Netflix and Viz Media are teaming up to make Seis Manos, a new Mexican-set animated series that’s slated to launch globally on the streaming giant in 2019.

Viz Media’s first original animated property, Seis Manos’ day-to-day development and production will be handled by Texas-based Powerhouse Animation, which also produced the Warren Ellis-penned Netflix original animated show Castlevania.

Set in Mexico in the 1970s, Seis Manos focuses on three orphaned martial artists who join forces with a DEA agent and a Mexican Federale to battle for justice after their beloved mentor is murdered on the streets of their tiny border town.

Co-created by Powerhouse Animation CEO Brad Graeber and writer Alvaro Rodriguez (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series), the new series will be directed by Willis Bulliner (Agents of Mayhem), while Dan Dominguez (Captain Underpants, Spongebob Squarepants) is also onboard as a writer.
